and if you take away all the double sales for having to replace a RROD 360 those #s are even higher for P3 sales.

Not to mention all the "double" sales because of RROD. I tip my hat to Sony, I'm sure 3rd parties will know who to cater to next time.

C'mon... A lot of those sales were under warranty and those cannot be counted as "sales"... I am a sophisticated, savvy gamer -- A true sophistocrat. Let's be fair and be honest. Let us not sink to iniquitous tactics.

Yes, but xbox just sold 700,000 units over the weekend and Sony only sold 376,478 units over the week. It's neck and neck at this point, but even if Sony overtakes the xbox 360 -- Will anyone ever really acknowledge that they won this gen?


Xbox was released almost 2 years ahead of PS3 so yeah PS3 won


2 years? C'mon... 1 and a half at best. Sony released in Europe 1 and a half years after xbox 360's world wide launch. Don't think I'm hating on Sony, I love Sony -- I'm just being fair. A true Sopistocrat always plays it by the book and accepts the outcome that may come.


Ok 1 and a half big difference thats still a big head start and i said ALMOST 2 years

True Sophistocrats are privy to Sophisticated, successful information. The websites and outlets will be releasing numbers tomorrow, so you can compare mine to theirs.

I agree with you, they shouldn't be counted.

I don't doubt that you are. I'm simply trying to be fair with Sony and recognize their success. The PS3 was the console of choice for us savvy gamers, and it rightfully was the most successful console of this generation.
